The Perfect Cartoon for the Political Conventions

But as long as people are permitted to sing “The Star Spangled Banner” as they go over the cliff, they are still free.

Another Non Sequitor masterpiece from Wiley…

    It’s a wonder the R-party even still exists; it’s become such a degraded hulk (focusing on moralistic Christian issues while the economy goes to hell; forgetting all about its non-interventionist past). The Dems, though, I think they’ll be with us as long as there are millions of fools willing to buy into cons about free goodies.

    Me, I’d love to see them all go off a cliff — and the sooner the better!

    Okay, but just don’t get caught on videotape giving ’em the final push.

    Or – make sure you’re wearing your V mask if you show up on the video.

    In the alternative – if you make sure you get them all over the cliff, on videotape, we could probably make a killing selling the rights to the video… 😉

    The disparate groups that make up the empire are fragmenting and polarizing. Practice keeping your head down and being part of The Remnant.

    Your shiftless neighbor not being invited…

    LawHobbit – you might be right – but I’m going to withhold judgment until I hear Romney’s acceptance speech.

    Maybe we’ll be surprised with an uplifting spiel that announces the dawn of a glorious new era.

    Okay, maybe I need to lighten up on the ‘Raging Bitch’ before commenting on the blog…

    If we make a killing on the video, can we at least use some of the funds to hire the raging bitch a good defense attorney?

    I’ll be pleased to be one of the left overs … er, remnant, with the two of you.

    As to my shiftless neighbor … today, less than a week after I told Mr. Freeloader to get lost, his oldest son (about 10 years) showed up at my house asking to borrow $5.

    While I wish them no harm and will do them no harm unless they harm me, these are definitely the sorts of people we arm ourselves against, push come to shove.

    And to keep this on topic, if they vote at all, how hard is it to guess which party they vote for?

    It’s not clear whether daddy sent him (thinking I couldn’t turn down a cute kid) or whether he’s just been learning lessons from daddy. But

    Well, sorry. That got mangled. Jim, Jim, you need an edit button for we poor writers who can’t keep an editor handy at all times.

    Claire – I’m on the edge of my chair – waiting for what follows after “But…”

    What happened with the kid?

    Some guy called this morning asking for Pat Robertson. I thought it was a gag, so I went along with it and told him I was Pat. It turned out the guy was God and just dialed the wrong number.

    He told me I should go out and tell the people that He sent a hurricane to disrupt the GOP convention for their sins. He told me what they did, but
